Unreal! That should be the motto for those of us complainers and whiners (ie, for the ones that NOT seeing the DEAD, vs the ones that ARE seeing them...hmmm, are we bozos or bolos? we gotta have a vote).

Do it! Top post a vote.

And yeah, it already is the unwritten motto. For example:

Said to me Saturday night in Worcester by a 20 year old kid: "Dude what did you think of that China->Rider? I thought it really got going, really hot man!"

To which I thought: "You mean the one where they literally had to stop in the middle of the segue and restart Rider?! That didn't happen when I was touring?!?!?!"

(hint: I am the picky one here)

My sister at a DEAD show in 86:

Punk approaches her, and literally pitches his product with this line: "wanna buy some good shit from the 60s?"

Sister: "what kind?"

Punk: "you know, 60's drugs! Really good..."

Sister: "kid, you weren't alive then--how do you know?"

Punk: shrugs and walks off...

Here's another one.

Probably around summer of '89 I was working at a place in corporate America and looked it. I come out of the show and a long-haired-non-corporate-america friend of mine is smoking something that just smells great. I ask him where he got it from and he points to a long-haired hippie freak a few feet away from me.

I go over to the guy and ask if I too could purchase some of said great smelling stuff. Says he: "I don't know what you are talking about."

I point to my friend and say "You know, the stuff you just sold him."

"Sorry buddy, you got the wrong guy."

So I get exasperated, go back over to my long-haired friend and give him some money and say "Go by me some of the fucking stuff, the guy thinks I am a narc."

He goes over, purchases said product and... while the guy is watching, walks back and hands it directly to me. At which point I smile sweetly and wave as all the color runs out of the guys face.
